Size and Build
High ISO performance is quite impressive. I remember back on my 550D, I would be nervous to even shoot at ISO 800 as anything over that could get quite noisy. The image below was taken in a fairly dark restaurant and the amount of noise was minimal. I don’t usually touch the noise reduction in post but decided to give it a try which made the final result look pleasantly clean. If I was to shoot in a bright or moderately lit situation, I wouldn’t hesitate to bring the M5 along with me. If this situation was more challenging, the 6D would still be my weapon of choice due to its better high ISO performance. This is of course expected of a full frame sensor and nothing to hold against the M5.
Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
The M5 is the camera I never knew I needed, but now can’t live without. For some, it may be something they feel isn’t competitive enough in the current APSC mirrorless market. For others such as myself, it’s a great carry around or second body that suits their style of photography. If I was just starting out again I would personally prefer a body like the M5 as you get something small that you can take everywhere, as well lenses from 3 different mounts to choose from when using Canon’s adaptor. Below are some more images that I’ve taken with the M5.
Thanks for reading and you can expect to see many more photos from me using the M5. Over the next week or two I hope to use the body more with my EF lenses. If anyone has any questions or would just like to say hi, don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments section below.
